Registration Fees



Course Load Classifications

Audit enrollment does not yield unit load credit for other than fee purposes. Financial aid recipients must enroll at least half-time to qualify for payment from most campus-awarded funds. Payments will be prorated for full-time, three-quarter-time, half-time, and less-than-half-time enrollment in some limited cases. Payments to unclassified graduate students and graduate credential candidates will be based on the credit totals defined for undergraduate students.

Undergraduate Classifications

All undergraduates are classified as full- or part-time by credit totals:

Fall/Spring Semesters

  • Full Time = 12.0 or more units
  • Three Quarter (3/4) Time = 8.0-12.0 units
  • Greater Than Half (1/2) Time = 6.1-7.5 units
  • Less than Half (1/2) Time = 4.0-6.0 units

Billing

SJSU does not issue bills. To see the amount of fees owed in MySJSU (One.SJSU.edu), after you register for classes, go to: Student Center> Scroll down to Finances> Account Inquiry > Charges Due (tab). Due dates are posted within 24 hours after class registration. It is the student’s responsibility to make payments by the stated deadline - failure to pay fees by the due date or making a partial payment may result in all classes being dropped. The university does not automatically drop classes after the census. If you are on a waitlist, please check your account daily since enrollment in waitlisted classes may result in additional fees owed.

Changing your unit load from 6.0 units to 6.1 or more, will result in additional fees being charged. Check your MySJSU account for your payment due date.

Fees for Non-Residents/International Students

Nonresident tuition (in addition to basic tuition and other systemwide fees charged to all students) for all campuses: The charge per unit per semester is $396.00. Adding classes will increase the balance on the student account for non-resident students, so check your account after adding classes.

The total nonresident tuition paid per term will be determined by the number of units taken.

Mandatory systemwide tuition is waived for those individuals who qualify for such exemption under the provisions of the California Education Code (see section on fee waivers).

Students are charged campus fees in addition to tuition and systemwide fees. Information on campus fees can be found by contacting the individual campus(es).

Graduate Business Professional Tuition Fee

For students pursuing the MBA or MS Accountancy degrees, the Graduate Business Professional Fee is charged on a $270.00 per unit basis in addition to basic tuition and campus fees.

Parking Fees

A variety of parking permits of varying pricing and duration are available for sale through Parking Online Services. For more information, please visit Parking Services, e-mail parking@sjsu.edu, or call 408-924-6556.

Nonresident Tuition Exemptions (AB 540)

If you attended high school in California for at least three full years and graduated or earned an equivalent, you may be eligible for resident tuition. Students must file an affidavit with SJSU stating that they have filed an application with INS to legalize their immigration status or will do so as soon as they are eligible. You will need to show proof of attendance and graduation.

On October 11, 2001, Governor Gray Davis signed Assembly Bill 540 (now Education Code Section 68130.5) creating a new exemption from nonresident tuition for any student who meets ALL of the following criteria:

  1. attended high school in California for 3 or more years;
  2. graduated from a California high school or attained the equivalent;
  3. is registered at, or attending an accredited institution of higher education in California not earlier than Fall 2001; and
  4. if a student without lawful immigration status files an affidavit with the campus stating that he or she has applied to legalize immigration status (using INS form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative) or will do so as soon as he or she is eligible.

See Exemption FAQs for additional information.

Registration Late Fees

Post Census Late Enrollment Fee $200

Those exempt from the late fee(s) prior to enrollment census date are:

  • Students enrolled in the Step to College program
  • Graduate students who cannot enroll in lower division classes during Advance Registration.

Late Registration 

If you add classes during the Late Registration period which change your unit load from 6.0 units to 6.1 or less, additional tuition fees will be due. Review your account via MySJSU (one.sjsu.edu) to find the amount due and the payment deadline. Billing statements are not issued.

Registration - Deferrals and Waivers

In order to receive a tuition fee deferral, your financial aid file must be complete and all requested documents submitted. Check your “To Do” list at MySJSU for requested documents. Once you have submitted all requested documents, a fee deferral will be assigned to your record to hold your classes and delay the payment of registration tuition fees while your financial aid process is completed. To prevent enrollment cancellation, it is your responsibility to submit all requested documents prior to the scheduled tuition fee payment deadline. Be sure to monitor your account at MySJSU for file status changes and “To Do” items.

Important! Financial Aid fee deferrals are temporary and are issued once all requested financial aid documents are submitted. A financial aid fee deferral holds classes and delays the payment of enrollment fees while the financial aid process is completed. To prevent enrollment cancellation, it is the student’s responsibility to submit all requested financial aid documents prior to the scheduled fee payment deadline. The financial aid fee deferral does not cover housing charges.

If your tuition fees are to be paid by a third party (i.e. employer, government agency, college savings plan, or foreign embassy), documents must be on file before your payment deadline authorizing the university to bill the agency for your fees. Authorization may be given in person, mailed or faxed to the Bursar’s Office at 408-924-1654. If documentation is not received by your payment due date, classes may be dropped.

When financial aid or the amount to be paid by a third party is less than the amount due, you must pay the difference owed.

Federal regulations prevent the university from deducting parking permit charges from financial aid. Financial aid recipients must pay for parking permits separately.

Payment Deadlines - Registration

Check the Bursar’s Office website for the latest registration payment deadlines and due dates.

If students do not pay the amount due by the payment due date(s), all classes may be dropped. Note: We do not automatically drop classes after census. Students wishing to partially drop or withdraw from all classes must do so by following the university policies and procedures.

Returned check/ACH payments - 1st time $25
Returned check/ACH payments - after 1st time $35

Installment Payment Plans (IPPs)

The university offers payment plans to assist students in making their payments over a period of time. The university now offers two payment plans, one for tuition and campus fees* and non-resident fees, and one for housing only.

  • Tuition and campus fees only payment plan. Sign-up for this plan if you need a monthly payment plan for tuition and campus fees.
  • Housing only payment plan. Sign-up for this plan if you need a monthly payment for housing charges.

Sign-up for both plans if you need a monthly payment plan for both tuition and fees, and housing charges.

To enroll in the installment plan, login to MySJSU, navigate to Self service > Student Center > scroll to Finance section > Payment Plans and Account Services. See Bursar’s Office for more detailed information on payment plans.

Installment Type Non-Refundable Processing Fee

Installment Payment Plan (IPP) for tuition and fees $35
Installment Payment Plan (IPP) for housing $35

 

Payment Plan Features

Two fees are not included in either payment plan. They are due with the first installment of the payment plan. They are the Health Center Operations Fee and the Student Involvement and Representation Fee (SIRF).

Loan, Short Term

Short Term loans are available through the Bursar’s Office to assist students with expenses over and above tuition, fees and housing. Short term loans are not intended for paying your student account, as they are funds that you borrow against your account, to be paid back during the semester.

To be eligible, you must:

  • Be current on any outstanding debts to the university
  • Must have sufficient financial aid or be gainfully employed
  • Must be enrolled in at least half-time (six undergraduate or four graduate units).

Selective Service-Eligibility for Aid

The federal Military Selective Service Act (the “Act”) requires most males residing in the United States to present themselves for registration with the Selective Service System within thirty days of their eighteenth birthday. Most males between the ages of 18 and 25 must be registered. Males born after December 31, 1959 may be required to submit a statement of compliance with the Act and regulations in order to receive any grant, loan or work assistance under specified provisions of existing federal law. In California, students subject to the Act who fail to register are also ineligible to receive any need-based student grants funded by the state or a public postsecondary institution.

Selective Service registration forms are available at any U.S. Post Office, and many high schools have a staff member or teacher appointed as a Selective Service registrar. Applicants for financial aid can also request that information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) be used to register them with the Selective Service. Information on the Selective Service System is available and the registration process may be initiated online.

Refunds - Registration

A 100% refund of basic and/or non-resident fees will be given to students who drop all classes or withdraw from the university no later than one day before classes begin. Refundable fees include basic registration fees, non-resident fees, course fees and the miscellaneous SJSU fees. See the Pro-Rata Refund Schedule for detailed information on refund percentages at www.sjsu.edu/bursar.

Students who drop units resulting in a lower fee structure and/or mandatory fee obligation will be entitled to a refund of applicable tuition and mandatory fees up to the end of the designated SJSU Late Registration drop period. There are no refunds for individual course drops after this date. See the Pro-Rata Refund Schedule for detailed information on refund percentages at www.sjsu.edu/bursar.

Financial Aid Students

When students who are receiving financial aid withdraw, the unearned portion of federal and state funds must be returned to the appropriate fund. Financial aid eligibility will be recalculated according to a federal formula. Since funds are based on attendance for the entire semester, financial aid must be recalculated on the actual number of days attended.

For All Students

See Bursar’s Office for specific refund details.

Special Session and Open University students

Consult CPGE for specific refund policies.

Non-Resident

If a student completely withdraws or there is a reduction in units, any adjustments to the non-resident tuition is based on the transaction date according to the refund schedule as noted above.

Refunds - Parking Permits

Parking permits can be returned for a prorated refund (which adjusts weekly) minus a $10 administrative fee. No returns are accepted during the last month of each semester.

For questions or additional information, please contact Parking Services at 408-924-6556 or via email at parking@sjsu.edu.

All refunds are processed at Parking Services, located in the University Police Building.
